Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister has announced the launch of new secure immunization cards for fully vaccinated people. He explained with the card you’ll be permitted to travel within Canada without having to self-isolate upon your return to Manitoba. You will be exempt from the self-isolating requirements if you’re deemed a close contact by public health. In other words if you get a call from public health notifying you’ve been in close contact with someone whose had COVID because you have this card and because it’s evident that you’ve been vaccinated twice you won’t have to self-isolate as a result and with that card you’ll be able to visit family and friends in a personal care home as well.
Manitobans can apply for a digital or physical card two weeks after receiving a second dose of COVID-19 vaccine using a new online portal immunizationcard.manitoba.ca or phone 1-800-392-1207.
